A website called viraldisney.net is reporting that Coco may be taking over the Haunted Mansion at the Magic Kingdom.
They quoted on their website:
We are hearing through our sources that Walt Disney World plans on closing The Haunted Mansion in the near future to accommodate a COCO overlay. Many visitors have wished for years to see The Nightmare Before Christmas overtake WDW; but surveys have come back that the movie is just too dated. With the smash hit COCO, Disney sees an ample opportunity to capture more ethnicity in their theme parks.
I for one don’t think this attraction needs to be touched. It’s constantly around a 30 minute wait and during the Halloween season, a must-do for every Not-So-Scary trick-or-treater.
However, in Disneyland in California, during the Halloween season, their Haunted Mansion turns into the Nightmare Before Christmas. So maybe that’s all this would be?
I had heard rumors that Coco would take over the Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros in the Mexico Pavillion at Epcot but maybe Disney changed their minds?
Before you begin boycotting and picketing… I did my research and found a blog that essentially busted the rumor has nothing more than just hype.
Inquisitr.com pointed to a multitude of rumors even consisting of closing “It’s a Small World” for a new “Tangled” ride.
So, if you’re a fan of The Haunted Mansion, it appears the ghostly haunts will continue to haunt the back corner of The Magic Kingdom for the forseeable future.
